With real time data comes real time processing responsibilities, and big data batch processing tools like Hadoop are not designed with real time in mind. A lambda architecture may help address this by balancing batch and real time processing, but also introduces a lot of complexity of its own. So what’s the right approach for streaming big data? No single answer is presented here, but it’s a nice overview of the discussion points.
